Why I left Islam

imageThere are many , many reasons why I left Islam. But the most substantial ones were as follows.

Aisha’s marriage : I couldn’t accept a man who is supposed to be a role model and the most infallible man ever could marry a 6 years old child. I looked at apologist excuses such as girls mature faster in hot climates, it was normal at that time. They are all dismissed with the notion Muhammad is claimed as the best man of all TIME. His action has set up as a precedent of child rape and marriage in Islam as they don’t see nothing wrong with it. I felt sick everytime imagining how Aisha would look at 6 next to a 51 year old man, how he looked at her when she was 9. If you sexually attatcted to children, you are a pedophile. Muhammad was a pedophile, who also wanted to marry a baby after watching her crawl in front of him. If Muhammad wanted a wife, why not choose any other woman in Mecca? Why not Aisha elder sister , Asma? She would be a much better logical choice. Surely all knowing Allah would know in years to to come, his most beloved would be accused , (rightfully so) as being a pedophile.

Sex slaves: 4:24 allows the rape of married sex slaves. I found the whole notion disgusting and the words ‘right hands possesses’ makes me outraged. Women aren’t a object or a mans mere posession. I hated the cruel, callous way Allah talks about these women. Were they just objects to him? I couldn’t accepted the fact my prophet acquired his wife Safiya after killing her tribe, her brother, father and husband and raped her for 3 days. She was 16. I couldn’t accept the fact Muhammad did the same yet again with a 15 year old Jewish girl Reyhana. It was sickening. Clear rape. I cannot stay in a religion that allows sex slaves.

Wife beating – 4:34 allows wife beating. This is morally wrong to anyone with a sane mind. Why did my god think it’s acceptable ? Some apologists try and twist it and make it less evil by inserting the word (lightly) . As if it matters. The arabic word used means ‘strike ‘. Pure and simple. This is disgusting. The fact my prophet condoned and allowed this and even punched Aisha in the chest, shocked me.

Women as inferior – why is our testimony only half of a mans ? (2:282) why do I inherit half of what a male gets ? (4:11) why did my prophet say I am deficient in intelligence and religion? Why does Allah say men are degrees above me(4:34). Was I not seen as human? Or just an object to be convered, always with a mehram. It did not appeal to my ideas. Women are equal to men. I resented male dominance in my life , and I discovered my beloved deen, was at fault also.

Jahannam- the idea of hell is the sickest , most deprived idea ever conceived by the human mind. I couldn’t handle the fact most people alive , including my family and friends, and potentially me, would be in hell. Eating food from the tree of zaqqum, boiling water , thorns, discharge of pus. Dragged in iron chains and punished with hooked iron rods. Bitten by giant snakes and  scorpions whose bite you would feel for 40 years. Angels would smite our backs, our faces will be scalded off and new ones to replace, Alhamdulliah. So we may feel the ‘everlasting torment’. And this is for ETERNITY. Whilst Muslims get to drink wine and honey and sit on thrones and eat fish liver and mock us whilst we beg for water. I don’t think anyone deserves such a level of torment. Just for the simple thing of not believing in a fallible desert cult and a book in a foreign language. What sort of megalomaniac God can oft proclaim he is most merciful , most forgiving as he inflicts tortute on so many helpless humans. His own creation. That’s a huge fucking paradox. It was unfair. It sounded more like fearmongering to me.

  1. You applied logic and followed your conscience and ultimately thought things through for yourself. I believe you’ve made the right choice and hope you will continue to find fulfilment in humanism.

  2. I dont understand why people still make such a big deal out of “right hands posses” and slavery stuff. It has been explained greatly well by muslim scholars today. If only you were not be so bigot and close minded

    • I make a ‘big deal’ because I’m uncomfortable with the idea of women being captured after their tribes have been killed and forced into sexual slavery. I am not close minded. I don’t really want to tolerate an opinion that advocates this evil thing or open my mind to this , thank you

    • Firstly,there is no “rape” of female captives. Sex is permissible but that does not mean you can force them to sex. Prophet Muhammad didnt permit even slapping a slave,how can he permit “rape” then? You should look at this: http://www.call-to-monotheism.com/does_islam_permit_muslim_men_to_rape_their_slave_girls_

      Islam chooses the best option for slaves; not killing,not setting them free because that way they can attack back,so just take them as slaves and treat them as if they are your wife. They are like a family member,you should feed them,cloth them,protect them,treat them well and so on,so that they can see the beauty of islam and become muslims.

      A good video on the issue;. https://youtu.be/L1_ikJRVnM8

      In fact there are lots of other pretty good articles and videos which explains the issue very well but I dont want to overwhelm you now. If you want,you can research by yourself or if you like I can post more.

      I wish Atheistserena would give a chance to those explanations and watch/read them with an open mind,so she can see how biased she is and think diffirently..

      • Okay.

        Abu Sa’id Al Khudri said “The Apostle of Allaah(ﷺ) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allaah (ﷺ) were reluctant to have relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allaah the exalted sent down the Qur’anic verse “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand posses.” This is to say that they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.

        I’m sure these women who were just captured after Muhammad and his army of bandits (sahaba) were very willing to consent to sex whilst their husbands were alive. I’m sure after seeing their home invaded and children enslaved and men killed they really saw the beauty of the deen, Islam.

      • Btw ‘prophet’ Muhammad ( he really wasn’t one by the way) didn’t seem to care about Ali hitting a female slave ..

        So the apostle called Burayra to ask her, and Ali got up and gave her a violent beating, saying “Tell the Apostle the truth.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 734)

  3. Thats why I call you bigot and close minded. I wish you had at least clicked my first link and see it directly addresses your point ( = they cant consent after their tribe killed etc..) Just read it ,its not that difficult lol. Scholars have ruled that if sb rapes a slave he will get punished,so its NOT permitted

    Also this quote about Ali hitting a slave cant be authentic since Muhammad forbidden hitting slaves and this part does not appear in the other versions of the event in sahih bukhari , http://sunnah.com/bukhari/52/1

    • I am a bigot and I am close minded. And yes , they can’t consent after their tribe has been killed which goes against the word of Muhammad , as he said to his sahaba whilst raping the slaves whilst their husbands were still alive , don’t pull out. And yes it’s authentic , it appears in his biography by ibn ishaq. Looks like mo was a hypocrite

        “”These critics are ignorant of history, for slave girls did consent to having sex with their captors back in the past.

        John McClintock said:

        Women who followed their father and husbands to the war put on their finest dresses and ornaments previous to an engagement, in the hope of finding favor in the eyes of their captors in case of a defeat. (John McClintock, James Strong, “Cyclopædia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature” [Harper & Brothers, 1894], p. 782)

        Matthew B. Schwartz said:

        The Book of Deuteronomy prescribes its own rules for the treatment of women captured in war [ Deut 21:10-14 ] . Women have always followed armies to do the soldiers’ laundry, to nurse the sick and wounded, and to serve as prostitutes

        They would often dress in such a way as to attract the soldiers who won the battle. The Bible recognizes the realities of the battle situation in its rules on how to treat female captives, though commentators disagree on some of the details.

        The biblical Israelite went to battle as a messenger of God. Yet he could also, of course, be caught up in the raging tide of blood and violence. The Western mind associates prowess, whether military or athletic, with sexual success.

        The pretty girls crowd around the hero who scores the winning touchdown, not around the players of the losing team. And it is certainly true in war: the winning hero “attracts” the women. (Matthew B. Schwartz, Kalman J. Kaplan, “The Fruit of Her Hands: The Psychology of Biblical Women” [Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2007] , pp. 146-147)”””

        That’s it.

  4. “Islam chooses the best option for slaves; not killing,not setting them free because that way they can attack back,so just take them as slaves and treat them as if they are your wife. They are like a family member,you should feed them,cloth them,protect them,treat them well and so on,so that they can see the beauty of islam and become muslims.”

    Slavery is immoral, period. It is a gross violation of the dignity of human beings to deprive them of their liberty and to assume them as property – no matter how well they are treated. [You say treat them “as if they are your wife” – the Qur’an and Sunnah give permission to hit one’s wife.] A people defeated in battle might be detained as prisoners of war until the end of a conflict, but that is not a mandate to subject any human being to slavery.

    Any person, or any book – such as the Bible or the Qur’an – which condones taking a person as one’s property is advancing immoral behaviour and is an affront to the dignity of humanity. Slavery was wrong in Biblical times. It was wrong at the time of the Prophet. It is wrong now. Unless you are an intrinsically unethical person you would not defend slavery. The fact that you seek to provide moral justifications shows that you are not intrinsically unethical. You are only defending slavery because your holy book says that it is permissible; in so doing, you are placing your religion above your humanity, above decency.

    I urge you to repudiate slavery at all times and in all places.

    That is the crux of what needs to be said on this matter. As for the apologism that you have cited, it seeks only to justify what is intrinsically immoral behaviour: to take a person as one’s personal property because you defeated their community in warfare, someone whom you can now sell, and then to construe that sexual relations with them – even if not directly forced – are consensual is ridiculous and a yet further abuse of human dignity.

  5. The problem with ex-muslims,is that you never try to find answers. You just jump at the conclusion and make your decision once you have doubts.Have you ever consulted any scholar or something who are more knowledgeable in islamic issues than you to ask them your questions? Have you ever looked for answers? I am sure you did NOT,like all the other ex-muslims

    • What makes you think we didn’t? What made you think that we never looked at scholars explanations? I know I did. Yet is it possible we didn’t agree with their answers?
